Last year we witnessed the massacre of the population of Gaza by the Israeli army through its “Operation Cast Lead.” More than 1400 Gazans were killed, the majority of whom were civilians, including 400 children. More than 5000 Gazans were injured, and almost all of the essential infrastructure of Gaza was destroyed.

We must remember Gaza! At the beginning of 2010, Gaza’s inhabitants continue to be robbed of their fundamental human rights by Israel’s illegal siege, imposed since 2006.

Israel is acting with complete impunity and with the complicity of the international community. Egypt collaborated with Israel by refusing the 1360 people who marched in the Gaza Freedom March entry to Gaza to bring much-needed aid and to demonstrate their solidarity. At the UN, Canada voted against the Goldstone report, and the Canadian government unconditionally supports Israel’s regular violations of international law.

In supporting this demonstration for Gaza, Tadamon and Solidarity for Palestinien Human Rights call on people of conscience to join the campaign for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against the state of Israel until it respects international law and ends its apartheid system, namely by :

– ending its cruel blockade of Gaza
– ending its illegal occupation and colonisation of Palestinian lands
– dismantling its illegal apartheid wall
– respecting the right of Palestinian refugees to return home
– respecting the right of Palestinians living within Israel to full equality.

This demonstration is organized by the Coalition for Justice and Peace in Palestine (CJPP). Tadamon! and Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR) encourage Montrealers to attend.

End the Siege of Gaza! Boycott Israeli Apartheid!
